    In a word: Smoooove.
    The carbon just feels like it's erasing all of the little stuff that gets through on a short-travel bike. Just smoothness all over the place.
    Sweet on the Two2One! I, horribly, haven't been able to ride mine, knee surgery about 5 weeks ago, I can barely get in an hour on the road...

    Current bike is a basically stock 2002 Rainier with the exception of a Geax Sturdy rear tyre and a Ritchey Comp Rizer bar but it is soon to be replaced with a NRS which I will definitely post pictures and specs of once it is built (HURRY UP USPS)

    Here's mine..

    bad picture but what the hell. I replaced the SID shock with a CC AD12 as well - amazing difference, highly recommend. Think I'm selling it though and getting something a little beefier for my 200lb a$$. It has served well for the past two years though.

    Here's mine... just arrived. It's an AC Air, but I will either be putting a Fox or a Romic on it pretty soon. Maybe I'll post again when it's built. Meanwhile I've been making sure I can starddle it effectively.

    Thanks! I got it off Ebay. It's actually a 2002 model, but apparently was put together and then taken back apart and sold as a frame. The color is called "copper/silver". The guy I got it from said it was his last one, but you might check it out anyway... his Ebay user name is "bikeframes". I got the fork today also, so hopefully it will be together before too long. Too bad it's only 5 degrees here right now.

    That frame demands some.."highlights"

    Note the capbolt used to secure the alum pivot pin. Last year Cambria had these generic ti vbrake boss cap bolts for like a $1 a piece. Do great replacing those unsightly steel ones. Or, one can a smaller reg ti bolt and ano washer. Ti shockbolts and lower flange lock nut...which those 2 longass bolts and nut are $$. Cool tho.

    Yes, I know..I sometimes have too much time on hands.

    Thanks alot for the pics. Saved them all to my HD for future frame lust action and general reference beta. Bet since the 04 alum frame appears to be the same as last years...andf if so, that smaller and compact(read prob lighter then the 02-03's)rear triangle should retro the earlier frames. I don't think Giant sells them seperate, at least the years pror.

    Kinda dirty from yesterdays ride. Sorry..

    And those mentioned ti vbrake boss bolts.

    Frames are actually different than last year, the pivot locations have been changed slightly to work better with the new shock, so '04 frames are not compatible with the older models.

    Nice frame. I just received my small a couple of week ago. Weigh? 2435g without water bottle bolts, stem, and canti studs.

    I was a bit disappointed with the weight. I expected it to be closer to the 2250g mark even with the heavier rear shock.

    That Carbon is pure lust....

    Sweet ride man!!! Would post a pic of mine but it is muddy as heck sitting in an iced over rear of a camper shell covered pickup truck outside.

    Are there trails still up in Indy? I grew up there, and the mountian biking around there was kind of sad. Can't really compare it to here in NC though as it would not be fair.

    Anyways thanks for sharing. That rig would make on heck of a race bike if you trick it out right.

    What is the Carbon NRS retailing for? What's the best deal so far?

    Actually biking in the Indy area is quite good, but we make the usual runs to Pisgah NC every month or so during the winter. Should get back down in the next couple of weeks.
    Not sure what the retail on the NRS Air Frameset is, we have a sponsorship with Giant for 2004 and got our pricing direct.
    I will post a buildup when all of my parts arrive but it is going to rock. Marta SL brakes, F80X fork, SRAM XO, Hugi 240's/DT/Sun DS1, Race Face Deus Cranks, Time Titan XS pedals.
    Should come in a tick under 24 pounds without doing anything crazy.

    Wasn't going to do this yet but what the hell!!
    My NRS frame turned up in the mail today. It is not new but who cares. It would not have been new after one ride.
    20.5"
    Race Face Deus Stem
    Race Face XY seatpost
    Truvativ Team Stylo cranks
    WTB Rocket V saddle
    Easton EC90 handlebar
    Avid Mechanical disks
    Avid Speed Dial Ultimate levers
    XTR shifters, front & rear derailleur
    Time ATAC pedals
    Geax Sturdy tyres
    Rock Shox Duke XC fork
    So far she is 3/4 finished but should be complete by this time tomorrow (work commitments allowing).
    Many thanks to chuckc1971 for all of his help in getting it to me in Australia from Kentucky.
    Will post some better pics once she is complete.

    Duck
    Yeah Duck.
    It took me a while to find the bike but when I did he also had some sweet parts that he was able to offer on top. Between chuckc1971 and the guys in my club I was able to source basically everything there second hand (which did not worry me as it IS a second hand bike) with the exception of the saddle, handlebar, brakes and some minor hardware like cables and tubes.
    It is summer here and I cannot wait to get out on her and show an expatriot American some red Aussie dirt.
    24 hour event coming up in April for her along with a MTB orienteering event in 2 weeks. She and I will be doing some miles both outdoor and on the trainer to get me fit for these and plenty of other events this year.
    Do you know what the difference between the normal NRS and the Pro Series. I know the Pro Series has the 2 rear travel settings but is there any other difference. Frame on this one is made of Superlight 6000 series aluminium. Is that the same on all NRS's!!!

    Same frame short the 2 position rockers. The 2.5" travel mode was for heavier riders so the psi's could be more managable regarding the rear sid. Read that anyway. Same frame material with all the alum verions. Only some do not have v-boss mnts, and of course the various diff for each model year otherwise.
    Hey, that orienteering thing sounds cool as hell. I do alot of solo off trail backpacking, and can appriciate that kinda stuff.

    Just like you said..once they get dirty once..they're all a "used bike" from then on.

    Enjoy..I sure do.

    A little late-but a GIANT

    Here is my Giant 2001 MCM Team. Not as pretty as the new carbons but the Kevlar Composite is stiff as hell. I built it from the frame up-as picture it weighs around 20.45 lbs. Hope you enjoy.

    Nice sp00kme.
    About time you posted a picture of that rig. I have been waiting.
    Looks like you and me are just about twins except I got the pretty yellow bits on mine.
    What is the fork that you have??

    What is the fork that you have??

    Yeah cheers man, we should hook up for a ride some time in brisbane eh. I'm dead keen on some 12/24 races this year and the bike orienteering buzz sounds wicked.
    The fork is the SID race 80mm. It is sweet as compared with the shite equipment I'm used to on my old HT but I have been thinking about getting something with 100-120mm after reading some of Duckman's comments on geometry etc. I think the extra travel would position me a bit better on the 18.5 size frame.

    Anyway ride on. I'm off home for a night ride around gap creek, should be hard and fast after all this rain and a sunny day today.

    Your right about the geo. I'm a tad shorter then you(5'11.5"), and the 80mm front end just puts too much weight out there in front with the M frame, at least when I run the right stem at 120mm to clear my knees when climbing out fo the saddle. The bike felt almost dangerous with the sid sorta, but with the higher 100mm crown height, the bike feels again like its perfect. Plus the 100mm gives slightly more bb clearance.

    So Duck, do you also run the 100mm travel on your large??
    Any problems there??
    I would love to put a Fox or Marzocchi MX Comp with ETA on mine at some time down the track when the fun police (wife) gives me back my credit card.

    I run a Black Elite at 100mm....feels good. Tried the Bomber.

    I didn't like how it felt in comparison to the rear. It was definitely plusher...but that didn't match the nice tight feel of the bike. The Black is much firmer and bobs less.

    Actually, I have been told the complete bikes are not available yet. Your LBS should be able to get a frame if they still have some. You can check through the shop where I got mine here in Indianapolis, they will let you know what the deal is. Indy Cycle Specialist

    I ordered a complete bike in September and I wont be getting it until mid March. I live in Canada so it will be a few weeks longer or a wait, but I dont think anyone has a complete bike yet in North America.

    Pics...will post this weekend.

    My Giant story:

    Bought a 2001 Giant NRS-1 in Jan 2001.
    It was stolen in March 2001 - replaced it out of my pocket in March 2001.
    Cracked the frame at the stop shock weld in Spring 2002.
    Giant warrantied it with a 2002 NRS-1 frame.
    Had a boat load of ghost shifting problems. I had it in the shop about once a month trying to get rid of the problem. Tried every known remedy to try to fix the ghost shifting. Finally got fed up with it and bought a 2002 AC Air Lite.
    Giant eventually warrantied the ghost shifting NRS-1 with a 2003 VT-1 Frame.
    Rode the AC Air Lite like a demon! I was stepping up my technical game and realized that's the type of rig I wanted all along anyways.
    Late summer 2003 I broke the AC frame.
    Giant warrantied it with a beautiful 2003 AC-1 frame!
    I swapped all the parts over, the Swinger 4 Way is a dream...what an awesome piece of equipment. I still wasn't satisfied with the Psylo up front from the Air Lite build. I spent two months searching for a good, used Firefly and found my deal. So new it looked fresh from the factory, with warranty card, THREE springs and an 8" rotor adapter all for $310 shipped.

    I've gone through THREE NRS-1 frames, a VT-1, an AC Air Lite and now...

    My bike is now my dream ride.
    2003 Giant AC-1 with a 2003 Manitou Sherman Firefly up front.
    Sun Singletracks front and rear with a Marzocchi 20mm hub up front and XT hub at the back end.
    WTB Wierwolf 2.5's front and rear.
    8" Hayes up front
    6" Hayes rear
    Race Face Prodigy ISIS crankset

    For me and the riding here I like to do (very technical XC with a bit of hucking and the occaisional gravity runs)...it's the perfect balance of beefiness while still maintaining the ability to pedal.

    I have recieved 1 complete (mine), and 1 frame.

    Both are beautiful. If you have questions, feel free to e-mail [email protected]. You will drool over this bike, you will probably bring it into your living room every night.

    photos are at the shop. I will post AM. BUT...

    I have already fitted a custom Moots stem, (106x6 degree),Monkeylite bars, Moots layback seatpost, and am fitting it with XTR cassette, cranks, and assorted Ti bolts and bits. This will be a sweet machine. Anyone in TX for the Norba opener will see her shine! (the bike, not me...) I will post pics manana! I am hoping for -24#, with REAL tires, BTW.

    I would be happy to sell them for $65.00US a pair. We have deep crazy soil here, we need tread for security. Let us know, [email protected], thanks!

    Ac...

    bikeCOLORADO, Bikebrain... 1 question for you guys... are you using the seatpost shim? If not, have you found that there is less seatpost insertion without it? I read something about the shim aligning the seatpost to go further in than without it, but I don't have both sizes of seatposts to try it. In fact I don't have any seatpost, so I'm trying to decide which size to buy...

    Thanks!

    I look at it this way...if you don't use the shim and a 27.2 seatpost, then you VOID THE WARRANTY. With the way I break stuff, that's a no brainer. I definitely use the seat post shim.

    i have a giant 2003 nrs 2 with a syncros 30.9 seatpost. the 27.2 diameter seatpost and shim is used because the 27.2 is smaller and will miss some of the imperfection in the seat tube.

    Thank you!! This is my second AC1(My first was stolen). The Romic made it a great bike, as I'm sure the Manitou Swinger would be cool on the 04'. I'll probably be looking for a deal on an 03 or 04 next year. I just bought the Z150 used of of the classifieds. I can't wait to test it on Sunday.

    2003 Vt-2

    Really enjoying seeing other Giant owners rides. Everyone modifies to suit their style, tastes, and needs for the personal touch. My new Giant is a 2003 VT-2 Demo from my LBS. Mods include Black Super Air 100-120, XT hubs with X317 rims, Thomson seatpost and stem, Azonic CF-1 bars, and SRAM rocket shifters. I normally ride rugged XC trails. The bike is a dream for me. Thanks!

    Saweeeeeeeet, how did it pedal uphills with the Romic? From the giant website, it says the Swinger makes it a pretty good climber.
    Hope to see more AC bikes pix.

    A fine and still clean example of one of my favorite all time models offered the past couple ot years. Until the new carbon air came out, it was still my fav. "look" for the Air model. Still is for the alum frame. I'm vain like that ya know. Maybe i'm just bias to black. Probably.

    here are some photos 04 AIR

    I am still waiting on XTR cranks, may go with a Lo-rise monkey lite, the hi seems a bit high. Like the Moots layback post and custom 106 x 6 degree stem? I have Ti, Carbon, and Aluminun to represent here!

    Dang...that's just "weigh" too light! Kudos to all you lightweight XC riders and your sweet (and light) rigs. Been there done that...it just took me a while to realize that's not the riding I'm made for (physically and psychologically).

    Hey take that Rockshox sticker off of your bike before it makes your frame break!!! You could fix it with a Marzocchi Sticker, but I think their stickers weigh more than the Rockshox ones.

    Nice Bike!!

    I second that. The Giant DH has to be one of the most contemporary looking frames in the DH arena. I just says "Hey I'm a DH machine no more, no less bring your skills!"

    I ride with a guy over here in Oz who has those tyres with his red XTC3 and it looks great too.
    I think I need to go with the Python Golds with my black, yellow and white NRS.

    ... and if we just ... Romic is fine!!

    Hey What's going on!!

    The shock has been great, I actually sent it in to Romic last week to be rebuilt. The platform was starting to go away, and I figured it was due for a rebuild I could hear bubbles on the rebound stroke. I'm running my old Rockshox while I'm waiting for the Romic to return. How has your 67 been holding up, particularly the swingarm. Have you been racing Fontana or anything? Have you been to Bootleg Canyon outside of Vegas? Just wondering, We are thinking of going out there...

    Rideon,

    Good to hear the Romic has been treating you well. I've had a Romic on my 67 for about a year, and it is holding up well. This shot was taken last weekend. I've broken one swingarm, but Weyless/Supergo hooked me up with a new one. I have been talking to the designer of the 67, and they have a new frame coming out in a couple of months to replace the 67. They started from the ground up on the new design. I'll post some pics once he sends me the new one. I have been out to Bootleg to race last year. What a hoot. The most difficult course I've ever raced, but very fun. I raced Big Bear about 5 times last year. My wife got me a SC Heckler for X-mas. Dare I say that the 5th Element is a superior shock? I hate to say it, but after the initial pain of getting it set up, that shock rocks. It's the perfect trailbike. Take er easy, and we'll see you out on the trails.

    My 02 AC Air

    This is a pic of my AC Air, with Romic rear shock, and Boxxer race on the front.She lasted a full year before giving up the ghost. I've included some pics of the broken chainstay, and cracked seat tube. To Giant''s credit, they were great about hooking me up with a new swingarm, and then evetually an 03 frame which I sold.

    Why???
    It IS a Giant isn't it.
    I'm pretty sure that 840ATX WAS made by Giant.
    Come on. Stop teasing. I want to see it.

    toowoombarider tire choice

    Any reason why you would choose python golds over panaracer fire xc with yellow stripes?
    I have a black nrs air with red stripes in the frame and the panaracers with red stripes look awesome (Cripes, I sound like a woman trying to match a purse with her shoes).

    Quote Originally Posted by toowoombarider

    I ride with a guy over here in Oz who has those tyres with his red XTC3 and it looks great too.
    I think I need to go with the Python Golds with my black, yellow and white NRS.

    Sorry, you have lost me.
    Why would I go with Panaracers with red walls on a Black & Yellow bike.
    I agree I would do that if I had a Black & Red bike.

    little confused

    The panaracer site has yellow panaracer tires, I saw them last year at pricepoint for a cheap price, or maybe nashbar. I think it only comes with steal bead though. (i was just saying red for me, yellow for you). Sorry for the confusion.

    My first full suspension bike, NRS air

    This winter (live in stupid Ohio) I decided to try full suspension bike. So I bought a NRS air frame for $300 on ebay, I think it was a good price. Anyways, hopefully spring will come so I can ride. Eventually plan to replace the rear shock with a cloud nine since the reviews are so good (Unfortunately, I have a fiance that is starting to monitor my bike spending habits - who needs an IRA?). Here is a picture for now, she's old, but she's mine. Is it normal to think a bike is sexy?

    Hey nrsair_dpm
    That bike does look good with the red tyrewalls.
    I just bought me some IRC Seracs for mine and guess what....................they have red walls. Oh well, they were an awesome price and I am told they are quite a good tyre too.

    Nice bike

    Nice bike. I'm obviosly biased since I have the same frame except disc only, and heavier. I just bought my frame, so I was wondering how you like yours. It's snowing here, so I won't know for quite some time what it's like (other than riding it in circles in my apartment). Any idea how much your bike weighs?
    Thanks

    two2one finally.

    I have really been enjoying pounding this bike into the ground. Love the way it handles. It's fast.



    Front view of the two2one. I don't clean my bikes.



    Detail of the PVC I used to space out the DX cog. Thanks to Mr. Guerrero at Dirtrag.

    My NRS AIR

    Well, I guess I need to show mine since the thread say "Show us you Giant" I am thinking of selling this bike, but if I don't sell it, then I would change the front fork with a FOX F80X. This bike is setup with full XTR, Mavic SL and the rest are Easton products.

    Some updated pics

    Since most all the pics of this ride were deleted by my bud that I share my host site with.
    Just stuck the 4.5" rockers back on for the next race since its gonna be very technical, unlike last Sundays race. 22lbs even as is. Stans front alloy rotor, with 140mm steel rear as always.

    <img src="http://www.fototime.com/ftweb/bin/ft.dll/standard?pictid={F5C3DC46-5D3D-41F8-B7DA-7D2B44263A8F}">

    This saddle is amazingly comfy. Flexes alot, which is key.

    <img src="http://www.fototime.com/ftweb/bin/ft.dll/standard?pictid={B093F85E-EB3A-43CC-9803-1145D55196BF}">

    Drivetrain(RF Next LPs, 42/31/20 front with 11-27 Duraace cassette, ti action tec bb, ti crk blts, alloy ringwear, midcage xtr RD, twin ti Eggs), 4.5 rockers, and ti spoked 24h Hugi hubs 3.1ust hub'd rear wheel with std non-ust Racing Ralphs with Stans and no rimstrips.
    This bike as been flawless this season so far in the first 2 races.

    Duckman, why you use a DuraAce cassette on your race bike? Weight savings, performance or just because by running 2x9 you need a different ring/cog combination?

    Hope you see the black granny 20t in the pic, for a true 3x9 on this ride for this season. I DID run a 36/24 up front last season and the DA cassette wasn't enough. One you drop a ring up front, you lose your overlap between the front rings, so a wide ratio cassette is demanded to compensate. With the 42/31/20 now up front, I get that overlap back...inherantly much lighter(aftermarket as well, as smaller overall rings in general)front rings, less required chain length(=lighter and more whip control thru fast tech), and the ablity to use the DA cassette effectively. The DA is indeed measurably lighter then anything else short of alloy cassettes, and the ratios are much closer for better cadences for climbing, using each perspective front ring of course. Otherwie it wasn't worth the wt savings vs performance loss with the 2x9 of last year.

    Updated picture

    Here's an updated pic of my beloved VT, hasn't seen much use since getting hooked on SSing but still gets a lot of attention.



    Recent changes: Thomson stem, Manitou Black Super and 203 front rotor.

    I was planning on a Minute 1 but crash and needed some parts so the funds for the Minute were reduced and got a good deal on the Black.

    Latest picture of my NRS. So far 500+ miles on it and should add more for the death valley trip this week.

    Only thing new: WTB Mutanos 2.4 (F) 2.24 (R) and WTB Rocket. So tempted to buy the Sram X-9 stuff but realize I dont need it yet....

    Lookin' good! How'd you end up with a black rear triangle? Mine's the same red as the front...

    Thanks!

    I ended up with the black rear triangle becuase there was some play developing in the rear bushings. So my LBS had giant send in a new one (I had to pay 50 bucks though to cover the shipping and wrenching). Also I think they were also trying to fix the shock play, but that didnt work. The color scheme actually works out nicely, matches with the front skareb.

    Yeah, the skareb lowers are alright, but it just doesnt feel like enough travel. Im saving up my money to get either a black elite or maybe a vanilla.

    certified dealers

    My dad is like best friends with the guy who owns this bike shop and hes certified by giant. Its a one time thing so if you want one you better go out and get it on friday cause their not gonna last long. Giant is only sending them to a limited amount out certified dealers (thats what they say) and i guess hes one of em. btw the bike rides like a dream.

    sort of

    It follows the same lines as the warp DS2. Its a mix of a DS2 and a canyon. my last bike was a DS1 I still use it but it was time for a new bike.

    yeah

    The tires are Iguana four XG tires , nice matte flat black paint job with limited on it. The thing about the paint is the silver lettering. It isnt paint its unpainted aluminum (raw frame). It has the direct brakes not disk, and it doesnt have the rock shock front suspension.

    Here's my 04 NRS Air... just got the frame on Thursday and finished assembling it last night late. These pics were before the neighborhood maiden voyage. Just a few tweaks left here and there and I'll be in business! Basically - its 1 04 Frame - with a 04 Manitou Black Super Air SPV, Full XTR, Mavic XM819 tubeless wheels, Easton Monkeylite SL, EC70 post, and EA70 stem. SS Eggs, Fizik saddle, and Oury lock ons. Came in at 25 flat at the bike shop today when I stopped by to show them. I'm still waiting on my Twin Ti Eggs, ASpide saddle, to get here. And when Summer comes back around and it dries out I'm running my Fast Freds (just have to with a classy name like that) - so I should be able to drop the weight down a bit there. I even ended up using my Sram chain I bought for my road bike (we'll see how long it lasts) PC89-R Hollow pin (and drilled side plates).

    I guess I missed my old 2001 NRS too much and had to get another!

    Here's a picture!

    XTC Team

    Here's a taste of what Giant Riders in Malaysia are riding these days. I am particular proud of my current 2 years old Giant XTC Team. The only major operation done was the rear sus link that got rethreaded due to over fastening.

    Tres cool man. Giant should release it as a regular item. I'm sure people would just scramble to get one. That anodized finish is awesome!

    What's a Canyon btw? I know the DS Warp, but I can't say I'm familiar with the Canyon. Why didn't they make it disc compatible? What "category" would your bike be under? Is it a slalom/4x bike?

    My most recent pic...

    And a reason to try learn how to post pictures a different way


    New tire and grips.... soon to have a new hollowpin chain and a 990 cassette.
    Later this year hope to have Chris king hubs laced to either DT swiss or Mavic rims(it will be tubeless vs tubed).
    Just trying to keep this thread near the top

    Here's mine. It's not a high end bike like the others posted here but it does what I want it to do. I've just got into mt biking and I'm hooked. I haven't been able to ride for three days now because of the rain and I'm having withdrawals.

    SuiChai - I really like that paint scheme on your NRS, it wasn't available like that in North America. I have a blue NRS, but unfortunetly I don't have a digital camera or scanner to post pics with.

    Sweet paint on that thing. I belive it's a '02 model though. I can tell by the welding job at the neck. I may be wrong though.

    Here's my new '04 NRS 1. I've replaced the seatpost with a 30.9 Easton carbon fiber post and the bars with Easton Monkey Light carbon fiber risers. I replaced the SRAM cassette with a light XT unit. I installed red alloy nipples in the front wheel. I also replaced the stock cro-mo railed Rocket V saddle with a Ti railed Rocket V and installed light weight Ritchey flat pedals. It is a 22.5" bike and it now weighs 25.9lbs. After selling the new parts, I still have less than $2K in it.

    If I could just get a Warp with the color scheme of the Canyon Limited and the Specs on the DJ.... it would be a real dream machine!!!

    Unfortunately I have to live with a white stock DS1 '03.... the new polished Al doesn't make it regarding look neither.

    I really like the colors on the DS2 and DS3 (blue and red) but the DS1 only comes in white.... poor of me....

    Hey, that orienteering thing sounds cool as hell. I do alot of solo off trail backpacking, and can appriciate that kinda stuff.

    Just like you said..once they get dirty once..they're all a "used bike" from then on.

    Enjoy..I sure do.
    The lower shock mount on the Pro model is shorter than other models thus the shock is at a different angle. I have two 2002 nrs. One is a NRS2 and one is a Pro . The top tube is a little lower on the Pro. Both are medium bikes. The difference is really hard to notice and I cannot tell any difference in the ride.

    This one which is also on lightbikes. The only thing remaining from the Giant is the bottle cage and the barends, but now with holes in them.

    I also had a SC superlight in between these two.
